Symptoms

Using mod_rewrite configuration to change requests from non-ssl to ssl, does not work for multiple sites/virtual hosts.
Configuration works for one site but the other site is rewritten back to the first site.

The issue can be seen using the following steps:

1. Set configuration in the OHS Configuration as follows:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L]


2. Start OHS.


3. Test requests.


4. Does not work as expected. It is seen that it works for one of the site definitions in a VirtualHost, but not for others.
